Happy Monday dear readers.
I think one of my favorite things about creating these playlists is that they're so diverse. No genre is left out, no artist is too unknown or too popular to be included. Everyone is welcome. I hope that as you're listening you keep your mind and ears open to the possibility of finding a new favorite artist.
London Grammar released their third studio album Californian Soil and from it we selected "Lord It's a Feeling" and "Baby It's You". While these songs couldn't be more different, they're both good representatives of the album as a whole. "Lord It's a Feeling" is dark and painful and speaks in the third person about a woman who's trapped in a toxic relationship with a man who keeps cheating on her and makes her feel worthless.
Grace VanderWaal surprised us this week with a edgy rock sound on her new single "Repeat". The song opens with a steady baseline and continues only accompanied by VanderWaal's vocals and a drum beat until the chorus. This style fits her voice really well and allows her space to growl and get gritty in her performance.
